WELCOME TO AFRICA'S FIRST CANNABIS INCUBATOR
AfriCanna Innovation is the very first cannabis incubator on the African continent. As the pioneers in this exciting, newly legalised industry in South Africa, we are committed to empowering our people to acquire skills that will enable them to take advantage of the emerging opportunities in the cannabis value chain.
We do this by combining discipline, specific practical skills transfer (across multiple sectors in the cannabis value chain), with globally & locally accredited education & training providers and skilled practitioners, to deliver the highest quality, sustainable businesses to our markets.
Our implementing partners have over 50 years of combined experience & support the critical need for transformation through real capability, not patronage, and are committed to real, sustainable transformation, not token empowerment.
The global cannabis industry is booming. The market for cannabis is estimated at approximately $700 billion globally with demand outstripping supply by far.
In 2018 South Africa legalised the industrial and medical use of cannabis. It is giving opportunities to local entrepreneurs to explore business opportunities in an industry that is estimated to be worth R27 billion.
